Cancer & the Role of Environment
Pediatrician and child neurologist, Dr. Jasleen Goel will speak on Cancer & the Role of the Environment to help you protect your family.
“A pediatrician since 1984, I love children and find working with them extremely rewarding. My experience in pediatrics has spanned 4 different countries in three different continents, giving me a unique perspective on health, disease, lifestyle and environments.
Whereas daily pediatric practice in the past was mainly infectious disease, pediatricians today are seeing a lot of ADD, ADHD, autism, allergies, asthma and obesity - conditions that were rare or unheard of 30 years ago- conditions that are now increasingly linked to the environment.
A growing understanding that much adult disease has its origins in fetal life is making the pediatrician's role even wider- that of preventing adult disease. Breast cancer is one such condition. It is far commoner than it was in the past, and concerns about the role of early life exposure to environmental estrogens are growing within the scientific community. It is imperative that we do what we can, to provide a healthy environment for our children to grow in.”
Free Yourself from Self-Judgment
Amy Ostenkamp is on a mission to help women who have “hit the wall” and are fed up with obsessive workouts, counting calories, and too tight pants to find balance, energy and freedom. Amy’s lived through this dieting struggle and came out the other side. Now she has more time to do the things she loves AND peace of mind. Today, Amy’s program, Fit Freedom, leads women through a powerful 6-step process that takes off the weight and frees them to eat and exercise with balance and reclaim their lives and dreams.
“I love nothing more than using my experience and telling my truth to help free others from self-judgment, diving criticism, and unhealthy behaviors. I’ve walked that path and it doesn’t end well. I was that overweight child who was picked on. Low self-esteem drove me to depression, drug use, a bad relationship and a teenage pregnancy. My mission is to help women feel better about themselves from the inside out. Because I know when you change a mother or wife you change the family”
